Limit autocomplete-suggestions from PCI/CDI to activated sources
In Primo you can activate autocomplete to get suggestions for search-queries based on what the end-user begins to type in the search-box.
We have tested the functionality and see that it could be useful for the end user to get these suggestions. However we see that the suggestions from the central index in some cases are a little strange and that you get suggestions from the entire index and not only the sources the institution has activated. This means that the end-user could get suggestions that gives 0 results.
If you get a suggestion that leads to nothing you will think that it was a bad suggestions and maybe not use the feature again. That reflects badly on the reputation of the system and institution.
We would like that this functionality is changed so that the users only gets suggestions from sources that are activated for search.
This to prevent that the get suggestions that leads to 0 results.
Thank you for this idea. As also mentioned here - this was also voted via NERS and is planned to be developed.
Made it through NERS, should be possible by autumn 2023.
NERS 6729, round 2 open for voting now.
